Add Document Link in Properties Form (configure layout)

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

I have a document library and want to customize the Properties from using "Configure Layout", I need to have the link to the document either on the header or the body but can't figure it out how. basically, I want users to be able to open the document from Properties window. Tried FileLeafRef and Name but didn't work.

 

Does anyone know how to achieve this without going through adding additional columns, workflow?

 

Thanks

@sarah__ I tried this on our SharePoint site and found the same behavior. Ideally you should be able to get the file name using [$FileLeafRef] but it is not working.

 

Try raising support ticket with Microsoft directly: Get Online support 

 

Additional Info: If you want to download the file on click from properties pane and document ID feature is enabled for this library, you can use JSON like: 

 

{
  "elmType": "a",
  "txtContent": "Link to Document",
  "attributes": {
    "href": "[$_dlc_DocIdUrl]",
    "target": "_blank"
  }
}

Thanks @ganeshsanap 
document id is enabled. I tried your code but the url looks like this which the value of document id is repeated:

/DocIdRedir.aspx?ID=MTS-1600998660-63,%20MTS-1600998660-63

how can I grab everything before comma?

 

 

@sarah__ I am able to download the file from properties pane by using exact JSON given in my above reply. Is it working for you?

 

If you want substring (part of string), you can check the supported operators in JSON formatting at: JSON formatting - operators
